Users of GOOG-411 can now save even more time when trying to find a location as Google a new feature implemented. When asking for a details to a location, the service will also tell you which the nearest intersections are. In the announcement post the example of the Google office in NYC was provided.
You can try it now: call 1-800-466-4411, look up ‘Google in New York’, ask us for more ‘details’, and we’ll tell you that our Chelsea office is ‘near the intersection with West 16th Street’. Unless you’re a seasoned New Yorker, this might very well save you from walking up or down a few blocks.
Intersections are available for most towns and cities in the US and Canada.
